This is the correct way to train. The traditional BRM (Basic Rifle Marksmanship) wasn’t training soldiers in the skills they actually needed on the battlefield. But luckily there are some in the military that have seen this and are trying to change it. The SOF community seen this years ago and while they must continue with the standard qualification range the actual training is based on Shooting and moving.
I have no doubt this shoot-move method has saved American lives and removed terrorist from the battlefield for good.
Why did it take so long for the regular Army to discover this? Simple, in peacetime while it’s great to preach train as you fight it also involves more risk, at least on paper. Commanders looking to make their next promotion don’t want risk. Risk in the past meant a bad OER which in turn meant no promotion or limited future promotions. It always takes a war to change that mentality as commanders actually lose troops due to the inability to shoot accurate fire on the battlefield. Then they find once again find their careers in jeopardy. One would think that common sense would be the main ingredient to training plans but it has never been that way.
This is a good thing.
